The Ballad of M. T. Nutt and His Dog

Written by: Andrew Barton Paterson | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 The Honourable M. T. Nutt 
About the bush did jog. 
Till, passing by a settler's hut, 
He stopped and bought a dog. 
Then started homewards full of hope, 
Alas, that hopes should fail! 
The dog pulled back and took the rope 
Beneath the horse's tail. 

The Horse remarked, "I would be soft 
Such liberties to stand!" 
"Oh dog," he said, "Go up aloft, 
Young man, go on the land!"
